In changing the cam chain on my '78 cx 500 I think I got the timing off. What do I need to do to get the timing back on? Thanks for your help!!!

I already have the motor dropped and split. I was replacing the cam chain. I'm just not exactly sure I have it set right. I don't want to have to pull the motor again.

I guess I already said I was replacing the cam chain. Sorry about the repeating statements. I didn't know if someone could explain it differently than repair manual.
